Troop H Announces Results Of Impaired Driving Enforcement--Labor Day
Captain James E. McDonald, commanding officer of Troop H, announces results of the Labor Day holiday weekend impaired driving enforcement operations. Troop H conducted DWI saturations in the following counties: Andrew, Buchanan, Daviess, Dekalb, Grundy, Harrison, Livingston, and Nodaway. Those operations resulted in one driving while intoxicated arrest, 39 traffic citations, five drug arrests and two misdemeanor warrant arrests. Troopers gave 147 warnings and assisted 21 motorists.
“The Missouri State Highway Patrol is dedicated to removing impaired drivers from Missouri roadways," stated Captain McDonald. “Anytime your plans include alcohol, please have a designated sober driver.”
The only 100 percent survivable traffic crash is the one that never happens. Make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Every day as we travel on Missouri’s roadways, we trust that every driver on the road is going to obey the speed limit, pay attention, and drive sober.
“Don’t Violate The Trust.”
